Three-Year-Old Girl Abused By 'Old' And 'Dirty' Man In Swimming Pool Toilet

A three-year-old toddler was touched inappropriately while swimming in a community pool on Wednesday.

The incident happened at the Nabiac pool on the NSW mid-north coast. Later that day, the toddler told her parents that while she was in the toilet block, she was approached by an unknown man and touched inappropriately.

The incident was reported to police and the girl was taken to Manning Base Hospital for an examination.

The man alleged to have touched her was described as old and dirty and wearing blue pants with a blue, green and yellow shirt. Police are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

“Detectives have conducted a significant canvass and we’ve established that the pool was very busy throughout the day,” Detective Andrew Waterman of the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad said.

“We would like to hear from anyone who went to the pool on Tuesday or was at the tennis courts or the nearby park.

“In particular, we would like to speak with anyone who may have seen a man acting suspiciously in the amenities building next to the pool – or who went into the ladies’ toilet.”

The investigation is ongoing.
